Episode Summary

EDIT
The Gabe Carswell Story
AIRED:

Gabe Carswell is a legendary scout who chooses to live with the Arapaho Indians for over twenty years. During that time he marries an Arapaho squaw. They have one son. Sadly, Carswell's wife dies when her son is still a baby and Carswell is left to bring up his son alone within the tribe. As the years go by Carswell realizes that the Indian way of life is waning as the white settlers progress westward and force the buffalo from the Indian lands. So, just before his son comes of age, Carswell takes him away from the tribe. Flint comes across their camp just in front of the wagon train. While Carswell's son, Little Elk, is examining Flint's new repeating rifle, Carswell explains to Flint his fears for his son. What neither of them realize is the lengths Little Elk will go to not to give up his Indian way of life and to prove he is more Indian than any Indian.
